Governance of BI Deployments

Governance of QlikView deployments is an important topic for any size deployment, but has particular significance for larger deployments involving teams of developers, large numbers of applications and changing data considerations. For QlikView system administrators, it’s important to have a controlled development and data environment and to have a 360-degree view of their deployment.

This paper discusses two principle aspects of governance of QlikView deployments: Application governance and Data governance. Application governance refers to both the development of applications as well as the usage of applications, in a deployment. Data governance refers to understanding what data is being used and what its lineage is.

This paper is designed to provide QlikView Developers and IT professionals with a high-level overview of the best practices and tools available to provide proper and consistent governance over QlikView deployments, small or large.
